Eastington Cricket Club – Oct 2022


It’s fair to say we got off to an absolute flyer this season, winning our opening friendly match followed by wins in the first 3 games of the league. After such a successful start we were soon brought back down to earth, losing our next 3 games. The remainder of the season can only be described as ‘varied’, with some good wins but a disappointing run of 4 losses, including some tight games we found ourselves on the wrong side of.

Our aim for the season was to target a mid-table finish, we were amongst 3 teams in the middle of the division finishing on exactly the same points, just an extra bonus point would have left us finishing 5th, however due to a low net run rate we finished the season 7th, however this is an improvement on last season.

All results and league tables can be found on our website: http://eastingtoncc.play-cricket.com

Honours for the season go to the following:

Batting – Will Beese once again is our leading run scorer with 621. Freddie Burrage picks up the best batting average with 47.80.

Bowling – Paul Hancock takes both bowling awards as leading wicket taker with 29 victims at an average of 17.66.
